Support through programmes

Coverbild: BWP 5/2018

Programme support plays an important role in the vocational education and training system. It can drive forward innovations, help the system to resolve societal challenges, and highlight areas where further action is needed. This issue of BWP attempts to shed light on these various facets on the basis of selected examples. One aspect in this regard comprises the questions of how programmes come about, who they are instigated by and who the providers are. A second focus centres on the issues of how the success of programmes can be made measurable and how effective transfer to academic research, policy and practice can take place. Although the main emphasis is on Federal Government programmes, interfaces to federal state programmes will also be taken into account.
